now. >> you were shocked when you heard that president obama had named mary jo white to lead the securities and exchange commission. and you wrote that she was a partner in a law firm that represented a lot of these big banks. you know, bank of america, goldman sachs, chase, aig, morgan stanley. you said, "she dropped out and made the move a lot of regulators make, leaving government to make bucket loads of money, working for the people she used to police." and i gather your great concern is that you don't want to see the country's top financial cop being indebted to the people who created the bank roe? >> right. yeah, absolutely. i mean, it's just simple common sense. i mean, you're sitting on $10 million, $15 million, however much money she made working there at debevoise and plimpton when she was a partner and you owe that money to this specific group of clients and now you're in charge of policing them, just psychologically think of that. it doesn't really work, you know? it doesn't really work in terms of how aggressive a prosecutor should be, what his attitude towards t
be many special guests looking down on president obama from the balcony's in the house are representatives, including this man, apple ceo, tim cook, who will be sitting with the first lady. reports say the president will likely reference coke and apple for their latest plan to move manufacturing back to the u.s., but that is not the whole story. coke recently announced a plan to make the new macintosh and the u.s., but there are a tiny part of apple's business. apple's primary product, the ipad, iphone account for nearly three-quarters of the company's sales and are all made in china at places like fox con. that's not going to change a time soon. because as steve jobs once said denton cook echoed, you cannot find that many americans to hire. i bet there are just a few american engineers out there that would disagree, but they probably aren't looking at being paid $18 per day. mr. president, instead of dividing the ceo of the world's biggest company, what you bring in small business owners who are dealing with her policies the in and day out. while they're there may be t
the planet so in obama's mind it's not a big deal. the more our economy fails, the better for our shrinking country in terms of the carbon footprint. >> i was a little lost with the tortoise and termites. >> i love animals. >> but you make a point. that's what the left argues, they say spend money, is no matter what, as long as you spend it. >> bob, as long as we're spending it on an alien invasion, it would be economically stimulative. >> i'm having a problem with the tortoise and termites. >> tortoise eats the termites. a shrinking economy solves global warming. >> we'll take that to the bank. >> that's a theory. >> all over the place. >> all right. i read it on the web. >> the budget deficit will be below a trillion dollars. this year. a trillion two last year, down to $835 billion. it also calls for unemployment to fall to 5% in the years 14 to 18. so i'm not sure it is the normal you're talking about. and there is economic growth in a lot of sectors and keep in mind, the last three years millions of jobs have been created. >> oh my gosh. first of all, blame george w. bush if you want b

, austerity has been hurting obama's economy, for the last four years. government spending has gone down in ten of the last 12 quarters. under ronald reagan and george w. bush you will find this part of economic growth and spending is pretty much all growing under the two republicans. you can see it under the graph. under reagan, it added in his first term a bit more than 6/10th of a percentage point, under bush, about half a point. under obama, it has been negative. if obama is a socialist he is terrible at it. here is the interesting thing, if the economy is shrinking because the economy is shrink, we now added new jobs, almost 200,000 jobs in december. and we added more than 150,000 jobs in january. what is amazing about this, this period was fiscal cliff element, it was what everybody was saying the economy really needed was deficit reduction. and this is a period in which we didn't come to a big deficit reduction deal. what we did is raise taxes. it cut the deficit a bit, but not a big deal. what happened to the markets? somehow we kept adding jobs and the stock market did really we
the show from president obama at the national prayer breakfast in washington. blasting the president's agenda, right in front of him. it's caught a lot of people's attention. ladies and gentlemen, dr. benjamin carson. >> the p.c. police are out in force at all times. we have reached a point where people are afraid to actually talk about what they want to say. our deficit is a big problem. what about our taxation system? when i pick up my bible, you know what i see? i see the fairest individual in the universe, god, he's given us this system. hoosr it's called time. >> he didn't stop there. carson is the head of neurosurgery at johns hopkins. listen to obamacare. >> here's my solution. when a person is born, give them a birth certificate, an electronic medical record and a health savings account, to which money can be contributed pre-tax from the time you are born to the time you die. when you die, you can pass it on to your family members so that when you are 85 years old, you got 6 diseases, you are not trying to spend up everything, you are happy to pass it on and nobody's talking

. >> and remember, president obama said this in the debate over health care. >> if you like your doctors, you'll be able to keep your doctor period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan period. no one will take it away no matter what. >> so, does this dramatic increase in the number of folks expected to lose their employer-based insurance suggest some other health care promises may not hold up? our panel is going to crunch the number in the next hour. all right, from alabama today we're getting new information about exactly what federal agents found when they stormed this underground survival bunker killing that kidnapping suspect, and rescuing the six-year-old captive in the blink of an eye and given everything they've turned up so far, it's nothing short of a miracle the way it all went down. fox's trace gallagher is live from the west coast news room, what a story, trace. it turns out that the rescue was much more dangerous than we originally knew. >> reporter: what we didn't realize ali, while the negotiations between the police and suspect were
with the president and his team and president obama said specifically in a debate with mitt romney that the republicans came up with this. woodward came out and said, that's absolutely false. when i was researching my book, my book months ago, all access pass to the white house, it was confirmed by many sources that this is the white house's brainchild. and now, jay carney, white house spokesman admitted that-- despite at that reporting the administration continues the charge against woodward. and issued dire warnings that the toll that all of this sequestration as its known will take on our economy and blaming the republicans every step of the way. they voted for it, too, by the way. yesterday, bob woodward again called the president's decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier due to the so-called cuts, a kind of madness. this is woodward criticizing the white house again. hours later, more fuel on the fire when mr. woodward accused of white house of threatening him for challenging the president's version of events. here he is on cnn. >> well, they're not happy at all and some pe
go to the miles per hour families. >> day two of the white house pushing the line, president obama started yesterday about how automatic cuts will knock hundreds of thousands of people out of their jobs among other calamities. >> tens of thousands of parents will have to scramble to find child care for their kids. >> today, pentagon officials said furloughs among their civilian employees would not start until late april. as for daycare -- >> how do you back up tens of thousands of parents will search for child care immediately >> look, whether that search begins on march 1 or in the near future, the impact on the economy and on people's lives is real. >> indeed, defense officials also said today especially if it did not start right away, not only will the jobs be furloughed, all civilian pay will be cut by 20%. one reason white house aides say they have the upper hand over speaker john boehner and the conservatives seem to agree. boehner had an op-ed blasting the president for not coming up with a solution. the republican declared the cuts will be deep writing a week from now, a dr
administration, president obama's administration, charged with this duty is the director of office of management and budget, historically that has been the case. but my concerns go deeper than that. i believe that every public official in this nation owes an absolute loyalty to the united states, to the betterment of this country and its government. and to the institutional processes that lead to the governing of america. there can be no doubt that every government official from the president on down is accountable to the institutions of our government and to the people, ultimately, without doubt the direction of o.m.b., the director of o.m.b. has such a duty. he's required to meet that duty with honor, honesty, efficiency, and responsiveness. he serves us. we don't serve him. he serves the american people. the american people send their money to washington and they expect it will be honestly and openly managed, accountable. they have every right to demand high performance from all officials, but particularly the director of the office of office of management and budget. surely there can be no h
. is obama's bill repeats the failures of past legislation and dead on arrival in congress. has the president concluded it's time for him to drive this reform and would that not kill what is being put together on capitol hill? >> on the contrary, the president, i think you saw congressman ryan and many others commented. even president bush's former speech writer commented favorably on the president's the approach we are taking to immigration reform. let's strengthen our borders and make sure there is an earned path to citizenship, provided people who earn it learn their english and pay their back taxes and have a criminal background tax. and make sure the legal immigration system is a reasonable opportunity for people so that they don't get kicked out of the system by others. we're going to continue to do that. the fact of this report, david, i think all it says to me is that we are doing exactly what we said we would do, which is we will be prepared in the event that the bipartisan talks going on the hill which, by the way, were aggressively supporting. if those do not work out, then we will
wrote to president obama asking for the underlining memos that the administration still has approdeclined to provide to congress. 11 senators signed that. a total of eight democrats and three republicans. democrat ron wyden was leading the charge on a letter. the chairman of the senate judiciary committee patrick leahy was on the letter on the democratic side. on the republican side, a motley crew of senators. you had mike lee of utah, grassley of iowa, susan collins of maine. that sort of indication of where you get concerned about the drone issue on the hill. you see a smattering of liberal democrats concerned in the house and a small handful of libertarian-leaning republicans that have expressed concerns on this issue. host: these underlying memos that the members of congress want, do they have to do with just drone strikes in general, drone strikes that have occurred against other alleged al qaeda operatives? guest: they may not happen to withdraw on strikes in general. they might have to do with drone strikes in specific. one of the issues that came up here is our anwar
the debt. we have to pay the bill. the idea that the only way you got president obama and the democrats in congress to cut spending is to threaten them that is not true. that one piece of inside information is president obama really cares about the deficit. if there is something he noticed in the first two years when the economic crisis had to be front and center, the thing he wanted to deal with was the long-run deficit. the idea that he went on a spending binge if you don't make threats like that is crazy. the evidence is there that he put spending cuts on the table. he asked them for them to be paired with tax increases as well. there is more good will than people realize. more agreement that we have such a big budget problem that will we're going to fire on all cylinders. we have to cut spending. frankly, we have raise more revenue. >> you're listening to the california program and our speakers are economic experts. we are discussing national, regional, and global economic challenges. you can find video online. there's a series of questions around employment and job growth. what wha

morning on this tuesday, february 19, 2013. the obama administration is walking back and immigration proposal after senate republicans said would hurt bipartisan efforts in congress. a handful of republican lawmakers in the house have proposed cutting spending $30 billion. should there be armed guards in schools? republicans this is your number -- democrats -- and dependents -- educators -- send us a tweet @cspanwj. or send us an e-mail. we will begin this e-mail with the hill newspaper and the house and house republicans proposing $30 million a year to fund cops in schools' programs. mark meadows and six other house republicans have proposed legislation that it spent $30 million a year on federal grants to help put police officers in schools across the country. according to a recent poll, 53% of americans believe increasing police presence at schools would be very effective in preventing future tragedies. -- we are getting your take on this this morning. armed guards in the schools as part of an overall effort to tighten gun laws. a democratic caller in florida, curtis, go ahead. ca
responses. the obama administration is under fire for its controversial drone program. now the white house is defending its right to target americans without due process. we wanted to know do you think that anything is okay in protecting our homeland or is it over the line. kathy from arkansas said i want our homeland protected at any cost. i'm terrified terrorists will attack the country. david from south carolina said we're becoming too dependent on technology to fight terrorism. we need an influx of human intelligence. >> thanks everyone who responded. we appreciate it. have a great day. "fox & friends" starts right now. >>gretchen: good morning. i'm gretchen carlson. it's wednesday, february 6, 2013. thanks for sharing your time today. what a difference four years make. democrats now say it is their right to kill americans as they see fit, the same party who said it was wrong for george bush to torture terrorists. is there hypocrisy? >>steve: come get your gun insurance. good idea? what do you think? we're going to report and you decide. >>brian: a good lesson for anyone. why it is nev
'm tempted to describe president obama's spending and tax ideas as small ball, but they're worse than that. they represent a conscious decision to neglect some of the most pressing issues that confront our country. you might even say it's a dereliction of duty in the battle to save america. last week, the congressional budget office projected that our gross national debt will increase from $16 trillion in 2012 to $26 trillion in 2023. now, that may seem like a long way off, but just since president obama has been president, the national debt's gone up by 55%, just in the last four years. but if you project that forward to 2023 when some of these young men and women who are working here as pages will be looking at entering the work force and looking at their futures, all they will see ahead of them is debt and a reduced standard of living. this is what lies ahead for all of us unless we embrace real spending cuts and unless we deal with the unfunded liabilities of medicare and social security. now, president obama has a secret strategy for getting our debt under control, we'd all love to he
, the obama administration decided to reassign those defendants to a military commission at guantanamo bay. but through that monthslong controversy there wasn't much exploration of what a military commission at guantanamo bay actually is. the debate pretty much, pretty much, pretty much boiled down to military courts are tough, civilian courts presumably are weaker, and given a choice about who you'd want to deal with alleged terrorists and enemies of the united states, well, it seems like you'd want the tough guys to deal with them. and there was not a lot of discussion about what military commissions are, how they operate, who runs them, those sorts of questions which i think are important for americans to consider when deciding whether this is an experiment that we want to continue or expand or at or drop in the years going forward. so this book is really a story of the development of this project as told through the, a number of vims involved in it -- individuals involved in it, people some who were policymakers at very high levels of government, some are judges. but mainly it's about
